The University of Pittsburgh’s Jazz Studies program in collaboration with the University of Illinois Press invites scholars and artists to submit proposals for research articles, reviews, and oral histories for upcoming issues of the journal Jazz and Culture. We are currently reviewing material for Volume 3, slated for publication in Spring 2020.


Jazz and Culture is an annual, peer-reviewed publication devoted to publishing cutting-edge research on jazz from multiple perspectives. All methodological approaches are welcome, including ethno/musicology, music theory, and critical and cultural studies. Drawing upon recent trends in music scholarship, we further seek to interrogate a range of issues connecting music, race, class, gender, and other realms of social practice. We particularly encourage submissions exploring the music’s international scope.


We request submissions in the following categories:

·         Academic Articles in approximately 10,000 words.

·         Oral Histories of Jazz Artists

·         Book and Media Reviews (1,000-2,000 words)


For submission guidelines email pittjazz@pitt.edu.


For questions, or to inquire about books and media for review, please email: editor-in-chief Michael Heller at Michael.Heller@pitt.edu.
